Bay Area Business Park Will Become the Largest Single-Owner Industrial Park in Houston
HOUSTON, TX (February 21, 2019) – Stream Realty Partners (Stream) today announced that Bay Area Business Park (BABP), an industrial park owned by Principal Real Estate Investors located in the southeast Houston (Port) industrial submarket, has received approval to break ground on BABP Phase III with the closing of an additional 95 acres adjacent to the park. Phase III will consist of three buildings, totaling 1.33 million square feet, at 250,000, 300,000 and 784,000 square feet, respectively. The largest building is expandable to 1,008,000 square feet should a tenant require it.
“Stream closely monitored overall submarket fundamentals and noted vacancy at an all-time low in the southeast submarket. These statistics, coupled with the extremely strong annual absorption trends, motivated us to build additional space and capture demand anywhere from 57,000 to over one million square feet,” said Justin Robinson, Partner at Stream. “Upon completion of phase III, BABP will be the largest single-owner industrial business park in Houston at over 3.35 million square feet.”
The first phase of Bay Area Business Park delivered in 2009 totaling 1.2 million square feet. The second phase of the project delivered in 2016 totaling nearly 850,000 square feet. BABP is home to many household names including Floor & Decor, Calpine, Honeywell and Dunavant.
Casey Miller, Managing Director at Principal Real Estate Investors, said, “We are thrilled to be underway on phase III at Bay Area Business Park. We are committed to Houston and are excited about this opportunity to grow our presence at the doorstep to Port Houston.”
